To those that got it, thank you.
About this picture: First, I did not want to introduce a sexy looking picture, because it takes away from the the message. I then selected a foreshortening angle combined with closed legs at the bottom to change the look of the mass. I then created a layer, GB and worked the edges to remove firmness. I even changed the shadow values very slightly to give the rear a softer look. Out of this layer I erased the juncture of the buttocks. I then played with the channels to augment skin imperfections. I even burned the hands around the joints and knuckles. yes, I got carried away. Well, at the end it was a nude butt, but not overpowering as a sexual image. Shoot me.

I am afraid to look around front and see frank and beans- this is erotic in a tabboo sort of way. very well done though. I can't wait to read all about this picture.

Very masculine legs, not that that's a negative... Quite a quirky and riske interpretation of freedom but I like it. It's simple, limited colours, high impact! 7

A classic - good job - composition and "exposure" (pun intended) are perfect. The red shoes are an inspired addition.

That's a brave woman to show her rear end to the world!

This is just unnattractive and gross. While she is in good shape, her legs and buttucks just aren't lovely enough to get away with this. Her hand looks rather rough. I just want her to put her skirt back down and put some panties on.

You must have had some fun doing this shot. I love it - well composed and lit and yet simple and effective. Definately free, Marilyn eat your heart out (10)
